Global Advisory Committee on Research, Impact and Strategy

The Global Advisory Committee on Research, Impact, and Strategy (ACRIS) is an independent body which meets every five years. ACRIS provides advice on future research directions to the Institute’s Board of Directors and senior management. Its membership comprises highly respected individuals who have influenced health and medical research, or have shaped health policy and practice globally.

The last meeting of the Committee was held in February 2018. Within the scope of the Institute’s mission as well as the Institute’s ambition to ‘make a difference’ and to have a major impact on health policy and practice worldwide, the Committee’s members helped:

  • guide and assist the Institute in identifying key health challenges globally, over the next 5 – 20 years
  • reviewed the Institute’s current and planned areas of focus and its activities, in terms of impact or potential for impact, on the identified key health challenges
  • made recommendations, regarding the best strategies for the Institute to pursue, to maximize its future impact on these challenges.
